Female Nude on a Kitchen Chair

Georg Baselitz

Female Nude on a Kitchen Chair

Georg Baselitz
  • Date: 1979
  • Style: Neo-Expressionism
  • Genre: nude painting (nu)

Baselitz emphasises the very physical nature of making his large format prints, seeing the process of cutting into the surface of lino or wood as an act of the body rather than the mind. This female nude is a portrait of Baselitz’s wife, Elke. Baselitz began by rapidly drawing the outlines of the figure directly onto a sheet of linoleum, then cutting into it, adding dense networks of lines. After working on the print for two days in February 1977 he put it aside, then returned to it and completed it in May 1979.
